What causes red blisters on the skin?

My grandson,14 yrs. old has a red blood blister on his skin. He thinks it is related to poison ivy months ago. Some where close to it there was a deer tick bite. The size is about 1/2 the size of a woman s pink finger nail and prudes about 1/4 inch out of the skin. Should I be concerned??

Blisters in concern with a tick bite and other reasons for accidental exposure heal within a period of time with due care and precautions.

If the rash appears without any particular exposure or reasons then only the issue has to be reported to the evaluation panel to look for the immune disorder or so forth.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I woke up with a large welt on my forearm that was itchy. I then took a hot shower and it became a small blister and the skin around it red with inflammation. I went to my pcp who prescribed prednisone 2 wks ago and it now has returned. I went for blood work for Lyme Disease which was negative. i have another package of Prednisone. Should I take this? Need diagnosis. Thanks!

This morning I had a round like blood blister form in my mouth all of the sudden. I ran my finger nail a crossed it and it moved and got longer while I could feel it move under the skin. It is raised up and touching my teeth. It is almost an inch long now and if i were to run my nail along it again it will get longer.
